Spend the Night
Spend the Night is an overnight program offered in the fall and spring semesters that provides qualified high school juniors and seniors who are interested in Virginia Tech and the Corps of Cadets an opportunity to be assigned a host cadet and participate fully in the daily routine of a cadet.
The program is designed for an interested high school junior or senior to experience an afternoon, overnight, and morning routine in the Corps of Cadets, leaving the second day open to participate in the information sessions offered by Virginia Tech, the college for their desired major, and a campus tour. They may also arrange to attend a class with their host cadet.
Seniors in high school should:
- To be competitive you should be within the middle 50% of students accepted to Virginia Tech. The middle 50% of students accepted last fall had between a 3.75 - 4.22 GPA.
- Score a competitive score on the SAT or ACT. The average SAT score of accepted students this past fall was a 1250, with the middle 50% of accepted students scoring between an 1160 and 1340. In addition, competitive applicants for Engineering will have a 650 SAT math or a 28 ACT math score.
Juniors in high school may attend if they are in the top quarter of their class, are taking college track classes, and have at least a 3.5 GPA.
